Cool, Refreshing WATERCOLOR®.
For Summer Runs, we infuse crisp, cool H2O with our signature colors — for vivid WATERCOLOR that also glows in the dark under our UV black lights! That means you’ll cool off in color at the stage and in the Festival Area.
So come add a splash of color to your summer!
"But isn’t it too hot for a Color Festival & 5K?"
We’ve heard the question before — always from someone who hasn’t experienced the joy of cooling off in splashes of WATERCOLOR® after an exhilarating run, or dunking their friend in the WATERCOLOR Dunk Tank.
We bet you’ll find summer is one of the best times for a color festival & 5k. Here’s why Color Fun Fest is made for summer:
The WaterColor Zone
Our Summer Runs feature a dedicated WATERCOLOR Zone — a separate arena (to protect non-participants from getting splashed) where the WaterColors fly. Buy a water gun, fill it up with WaterColor and let loose, or take a turn in the Dunk Tank where you’ll really cool off.
Join thousands of your fellow participants as we attempt to break the state record for the biggest WaterBalloon Battle! Thousands of Waterballoons filled with our vibrant WaterColor will create a fun and colorful splash for participants of all ages!
If staying fit matters to you (and it should!), summer time is no time for slacking off. Our Color Festival and 5k make summer fitness fun. With its 1.6 miles course, you can take it easy with a single circuit or double up for a full 5k. Give yourself something to train for this summer!
Hydration Stations, Shaved Ice and Ice Cream
Not up for a dousing? No worries. We’ve got plenty of ways to stay cool, from ice-cold hydrating stations along the route for runners to vendors selling ice cream treats and rainbows of refreshing shaved ice for everyone.
DJ’s spin heart-pumping music from a stage outfitted with giant water pistols that spray WATERCOLOR into the revved-up crowd. (Don’t worry! There’s a clearly marked, dedicated Splash Zone, so you’ll only get spritzed if you’re game.)
